towards the united states and its citizens. >> schieffer: was this a long-planned attack, as far as you know. what do you know about that? >> the way this perpetrators acted, moved, and their choosing specific date for this so-called demonstration, i think we have no-- this leaves us with no doubt that this was preplanned, predetermined. >> schieffer: and you believe this was the work of al qaeda and you believe that it was led by foreigners. is that what you're telling us? >> it was plans definitely, was planned by forers, by people who entered the country a few months ago, and they were planning this criminal act since their arrival. >> schieffer: mr. president, is it safe for americans there now? >> the security situation is-- is difficult, not only for americans. even for libbians themselves. we don't know what are the real intentions. of these perpetrators. how they will react. but there is no specific particular concern, danger for americans or any other foreigners. but the situation is not easy to keep stability. yes >> mr. president, will it be safe for the f.b.i. investigators
on america in our history. today people gather across the united states, around the world to remember the tragic events on 9/11. some take part in ceremonies like this. others spent time in quiet reflection and prayer. all of us take a moment to remember again where we were at that fateful moment. here together as one family, we pause to honor and to pray and to remember the 184 lives lost at the pentagon. more than 2700 killed in lower manhattan. and the 40 who perished in that field in pennsylvania on flight 93. these victims families remember those who were lost as mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters. the family members here today know that the entire nation joins you in mourning the loss of your loved ones. we're honored by your presence and just as your loved ones are heroes for ever, so are all of you. today we also recognize and remember other heroes, those first responders who rushed to the scene behind me into the fire to save lives and help in anyway possible. we owe all of you a special debt. we appreciate all you do it to provide aid and comfort t
a supreme court the united states that was still authorly understand the control of liberal democrats. four two brief shining years, or perhapses -- [inaudible] if you don't like the great society, for two years for better or for worse, the united states had a government in the way that we often speak of her majesty say having a government. that is a group of people who can in fact implement a party platform that can be judged at next election or series of elections. that is not generally the way the united states operates. courtesy of the constitution drafted in 1778 and what i want to insist relatively unamended thereafter with regard to the basic structures that we live under. the republican presidents since president johnson that is nixon, ford, reagean, george h. w. bush not for a single day had even a single house of the congress from their own political party. i'm sorry region had the senator. he never a full congress that was republican. bill clinton did have a full congress that was republican, but of course, bill clinton was a democrat and so you had fragmented government, george
the long-term. despite the bumpy path and the disturbing images, it's in the united states fundamental interest that people have the ability to choose their own governments, that the governments be democratic and free. that's in our long-term best interest. we need to reinforce that. >> we are in the middle of a heated presidential campaign. there are different foreign policy visions. that's why we wanted to dedicate the hour today to understand these different views. mitt romney spoke out this week, criticizing the administration, talking about whether the united states was apologizing for some of the initial response to this. these were his comments this week. >> the administration was wrong to stand by a statement sympathizing with those who had breached our embassy in egypt instead of condemning their actions. i think it's a terrible course for america to stand in apology for our values. >> our embassies did not stand up for free speech in this initial response to this violence. and the republican charge is that it's weakness on the part of this administration that invites this kin
, criticizing the administration, talking about whether the united states was apologizing for some of the initial response to this. these were his comments this week. >> the administration was wrong to stand by a statement sympathizing with those who had breached our embassy in egypt instead of condemning their actions. i think it's a terrible course for america to stand in apology for our values. >> our embassies did not stand up for free speech in this initial response to this violence. and the republican charge is that it's weakness on the part of this administration that invites this kind of chaos that the administration has not been tough enough on radical extremists that are beginning to take root in these countries. how do you respond to that? >> first of all, i think the american people and certainly our diplomats and development experts putting their lives on the line every day around the world expect from our leadership unity in times of challenge. and strong, steady, steadfast leadership of the sort that president obama has been providing. with respect to this, i think,
before them, and that's something i think we should discuss in the united states. >> let me read you something i know you're probably quite familiar with. for our viewers, something the president has said repeatedly. this he said at the beginning of the year. as president of the united states i don't bluff. i think both the iranian and the israeli governments recognize that when the united states says it is unacceptable for iran to have a nuclear weapon, we mean what we say. do you disagree with that? >> i think that when he says that implicitly is that he will stop them before they have a nuclear weapon, which means they'll draw red lines. i think it's important to communicate it. i wouldn't bet -- i wouldn't bet the security of the world and my own country's future from a country that threatens our annihilation and murders civilians en masse in syria and brutalizes its own people. i wouldn't bet the future on intelligence for simple reasons. american intelligence and israeli intelligence that cooperate together. that wonderful success about saving lives and alerting the people, and
's many and the other is that jesus isn't just for christians in the united states, christis love jesus but so do buddhists and jews and hindus and people without any religion whatsoever. >> the jesus image is multiadaptble because we are a 3489 religious nation. >> that's right, we're a multireligious nation but also a christian nation where 80% or so of the country are christians and they put jesus on the national agenda and then people of all different religions and without any at all respond to that figure. >> why did thomas jefferson become consumed with revising the bible by omitting a lot of it in his own text of the bible as you began your book with? >> wl, presumably it's not because he didn't have anything else to do, i mean, he was a pretty busy guy in the white house but he ordered a couple books from england, a couple bibles and he sat there in the white house and he cut and pasted and took out the miracles and took out the resurrection. he believed jesus was a good guy, he believed he was one of the most important philosophers ever but he didn't like christianity and he wa
the united states needs to do is take the kind of leadership that will organize the international community to address these crises, and it does not appear that is happening in the way that is productive and it's the result that we want. which is basically not to have the interest at the military level. at least two other feelings, the power vacuum, and ultimately, those who fall into the power vacuum are radical islamists. >> while americans still have widespread support from libya, shown by pro-western demonstrations, they need the help of the libyan government to track down the ambassador's killers. >> with america and now, based on the old strategy or tactics, and that means all the work done by president obama's administration has just disappeared. it is like a waste of time. i believe america successfully manage to pull itself out of the so-called war on terror, which is very important for the future between us and america and the arab world. >> it is also the new arab leaders. they met in europe this week to seek financial assistance. >> we stand against anybody who harbors these fau
right now . socialized medicine in the united states of america. what is that about care so as it about writing the book to it ocd ronnie touched on this because this was one of the central arguments. as i started to write ipod, well, of course obama is redistributing wealth here tell he is a socialist. in fact, i have a section in the book called this a socialist is a big fat liar. i was on with neil cavuto last week. he said to me, come on. look at this title. cassette, tell me what part of that is inaccurate. he is skinny. he goes on the secret burger runs, but he's not taking any rate. he's a socialist. he's lied to the american people day in and day out. prime example, will cut the deficit in half and my first term we all know how that turned out. he inherited a for under $50 billion annual deficit. he has quadrupled the. every year he's been in office he has run between 13 and $17 trillion annual deficit . added five to international debt and just three years. to give it to see -- this white. it took in three years at 5 trillion. for the first 216 years of the republic that is how
on his relationship with president obama. he also believes israel and the united states can work together to prevent iran from developing nuclear weapons. >> is israel closer to taking action into its own hands? >> we always reserve the right to act, but i think if we are able to coordinate together a common position, we increase the chances that neither one of us will have to act. >>> meanwhile, the obama administration today pushing back against prime minister netanya netanyahu's statement that iran is even close to making enriched uranium for weapons. >> they're not there yelt. they are not there yet. our assessment is, and we share this regularly with our israeli counterparts in the intelligence and defense community, that there is time and space for the pressure we are mounting, which is unprecedented in terms of sanctions to still yield results. this is not imminent. >>> turning to the campaign trail now. mitt romney had an event scheduled for colorado later today. it was his only campaign event of the weekend. that event canceled after an unrelated incident at pueblo's airport. he
risks for the united states, to go into these troubled areas to know who is doing what with whom and to help those who stand on our side of what we hope change will bring. i think it's very, very important not to disengage from this vital region. we have to find a way to doesn't involve military invasions of course. the count re's weary of that. we have to find ways to support those who are more secular in their outlook, they may not be a majority or the strongest, but these are our long-term allies. >> you are saying, there has to be tolerance for cultural differences. but my big concern that that folks don't want to go and assume those posts because of the danger and then how will we get information like the video running in egypt, if we don't have the right number of people in the right places... our national security, could it be jeopardized? >> of course, there are time when is diplomats will famously step forward, as happened in the disgraceful moment in the state department, saying going to iraq would be a death sentence. that wasn't true. we didn't lose diplomats there. b
to be the standard security in high risk consuls and embassies that the united states has around the world and that includes no low refile armored vehicles, the vehicles that have the tires that will continue to operate even if they're shot out. and other security measures were not there on the ground. general jack keane commented on the security that was missing here on fox. >> there's been a pattern of attacks all through the summer. so we have a pat he tern of specific aggressive attacks and finally, our consulate is attacked. now, that's a movement that's doing that and that is coordinated. i don't think any film, even 9/11 maybe the day they chose to do it because of its significance, but that's certainly people who are out of power, there are moderates in power in libya, they want it undermine that government and foreign powers assisting that government are the target. common sense will tell you that our security for that ambassador and that consulate was totally inadequate. and after we do that assessment and we're putting the proper security in place, rest assured whatever it looks
by an arlington, va., next. caller: thank you. ron paul needs to abolish the federal reserve or the united states treasury will take over printing money. then the investments would be safe. thank you. host: jeff, republican line, good morning. caller: good morning. as an individual, i have tried to save, realizing that social security was at risk and so forth. i have spoken to people in houston from argentina. frequently. my boss is from argentina. i have to say that if you are unaware of the debt of economic collapse, you really need to find someone who has experienced it. if our credit rating does collapse and we have to pay realistic interest rates, we could not even make the interest on the debt with our taxes, currently. host: jeff, thank you for the call. with the overall debt now in excess of $16 trillion, "the new york times" phrase -- framed it in terms of saving enough. david on the twitter page has this point -- host: shock is on the phone from hawaii, up early on this sunday morning. caller: yes, they have not saved enough. my social security is very minimal. i have been working for m
african-american writers on the election of barack obama, 44th president of the united states. [applause] next we have professor cornell west. [applause] with cornell as we all know is another national and international icon and in national treasure in his own right. he is a professor of civil rights activists philosopher, human rights activist who and really one of the boldest public intellectuals that we have in the united states today. he speaks truth to power even when when he speaks is unpopular he has the structure to be critical and against the grain even when it's hurt him and is standing in the black community. so cornell's latest book is the rich and the rest of us and we are proud and happy to have him here today. [applause] next we have fred harris, who is professor of political science at columbia university where he directs the institute for research and african-american studies. [applause] professor harris's latest book is the price of the ticket, barack obama and the rise and decline of black politics and professor harris is one of the leading scholars of african-american
that work? >> well, youtube's operating under united states law, and there are very few situations where they areequired to take down content. we don't have hate speech laws. the only kind of hate speech that is illegal in the united states is when it insights imminent lawlessness, and i think google was correct that the video in question did not meet that standard, so they made a decision globally to leave that content up. that's the right decision. it's very, very difficult. we have -- youtube gets 72 hours of video uploaded a minute. we have thousands of tweets coming in a second. we can't expect these companies to be screening on the front end, and our law doesn't require them to do so. in fact, it protects them from liability. >> i know it doesn't require them and you sate's the right thing to leave it up but it did insight violence and the deaths of four americans. >> well, i don't know that we know it incited violence. we know that those videos were used at least pretexturally. it's a decision that every company has to make for themselves. that's how we've made our laws in the uni
the united states to fill to take action against the makers of the film. >>> look at the ruins of the u.s. consulate to breed their covering the floor where a rocket-propelled grenade it ignited a fire that's believe the u.s. ambassador stevens may have died of smoke inhalation in his bedroom he spent a lot of time in the bay area and california graduate and so far 50 libyans of been arrested in connection with the attack. >>> return to the uc professors spend a lot years learning and teaching about the islamic culture >>> we ask if there was more to the investment is the movie. >>> the film was clearly meant to injured in insult muslims in the region and i believe it has had that effect. and the other hand we should remember this feeling that insult has to be seen from moslems in the areas in the context of a long history of american military adventurism he met in the bank recently been ended the war in iraq and ongoing campaign in afghanistan and drones sent into yemen and somali and the muslims in the region the film coming out of the nine states is seen in the context of that ver
, bond purchases every month meant to give banks the ability to lend more to people in the united states. italy and spain, two big countries considered too big to fail in the ongoing eurozone crisis could get bailout funds going forward to bring down their borrowing costs. both are instances of central banks initiating action when the political will to act is lacking, whether in washington or in europe's capital. joining me now to debate the tactics is rich quest. richard, welcome. today's q and a question is are central banks saving the world or are they making things worse? i'll go first, richard. give me 60 seconds on the clock starting now. richard, central banks are doing the right thing by taking action to shore up our troubled economies, but it is only half the equation. there is a world financial crisis like the one we witnessed four years ago when lehman brothers collapse two things need to be done. number one, central banks need to step in with emergency fiscal moves. two, make smart political decisions and that is what's lacking in the united states and in europe's capitals. a
his distinguished career in the foreign service, he won friends to the united states in far-flung places. he made those people's hopes his own. during the revolution in libya, he risked his life to help protect the libyan people from a tyrant. he gave his life helping them build a better country. people loved to work with him. as he rose through the ranks, they loved to work forehand. he was known not only for his courage, but for his smile. goofy, but contagious. for his sense of fun and that california cool. in the days since the attack, so many libyans, including the ambassador, who is with us today, have expressed their sorrow and solidarity. one young woman, her head covered and her eyes haunted with sadness, held up a handwritten sign that said "thugs and killers do not represent a benghazi or islam." the president of the palestinian authority, who worked closely with chris sent me a letter of remembering his energy and integrity and deploring "an act of ugly terror." many others from across the middle east and africa have offered similar sentiments. this has been a di
of the states want to work with the united states. they have a small group inside the state that wants to use the united states to rally and raise their own cause and also to undercut the government. so the worst thing we could do is cut support to these governments. they need our help, they want our help. they want to modernize, they want to work with the united states. but we have to do is insist they fulfill their responsibilities to protect our sovereign territory in their countries. >> i want to talk to you about a story that we have been reporting. you've heard about the people who are dressed up in nato uniforms, going in and killing people, harming people. we'll do a story about a young man killed in afghanistan, working -- he said he didn't feel safe trusting the troops he was training -- training the people he was training to be police officer. can you talk about that? that say real problem, isn't it? >> it is a real problem. and i know our commanders in afghanistan are taking additional measures, like making sure our troops are armed, making sure there are sufficient numbers of tro
people especially in the united states are saying no, thest a matter of free expression. the president of one of those groups was on cnn this morning. >> the only kind of hate speech that is illegal in the united states is when it incites imminent lawlessness and i think google is correct that the video in question did not meet that standard. >> google, which owns youtube, constantly having to make subjective decisions about what videos are okay. >> interesting. but this ist over because the white house has been asked to weigh in on this as well. >> the extent was asking youtube to take another look at it and then they said no, we're not going to do it. what you do have all the time, this is what's so fascinating about the way technology is changing the world. there are so many difficult decisions youtube has to face. for example, they say they don't all allow gory vooid, violent video, then you get these videos out of syria that show gore and violence. what we found is a youtube official who gave a talk a few years ago who said there's something they take a look at. to see whether a v
you call him having a conversation with the president of the united states. talk a bit about that conversation. >> well you know, i was actually here in new york. i had just been on that you and was in a limo on the way to the airport with cnn when i received a call that was a 404 area code. it was a plan to so i answered it and was congressman john lewis. when we finished talking i decided i should take my text messages because i couldn't keep my voice mail clear enough to keep getting messages so lo and behold there was a message from the white house saying the president was trying to reach me. so i called the number and they wanted to arrange the call, so it was so interesting these people in the media. the person who was in the car with me from cnn pulled out a camcorder and i said, you cannot take me while i am talking to the president, so i made her turn it off and put it away. [applause] so, he started out by saying you are a hard person to reach. well everyone knew i had been with cnn all week. but anyway, he started out and you know they would be calling me about a p
that occurring. so united states, for example, is very polarized right now. the media has become very polarized. and people are going in to what we call echo chambers they only listen and watch and read some media, and they hear the same story over and over and over again. and other people watch endless and read this other media. that's not 100% true, by the way, there is some people crossing over. there is a large enough section of society that are doing that. one of the most important issues facing us today is the issue of climate change. now just this week, we heard something like 98% of the green land ice sheet is melting. we have been seeing drought across the country, massive drought. food prices are shooting up. they're expecting ocean levels to really rise quite a bit proceeding the coastline. extreme weather getting worse, and no policy action. why no policy action. what's going on? why aren't follows makers doing? why aren't people getting out of their suvs? climate change is really hooping. well, to some people it's not really happening. in fact it's worse than not really happening b
management paradigms' for too long in the face of competition from beyond the united states. well the lessons learned -- well the lessons learned from how he it up to that general motors to the changing environment especially in the aftermath of 1920 be heated by a different generation of managers and executives. what ever be possible for any large enterprise to achieve the kind of turnaround he accomplished and then continue to grow for some years? the answers to such questions grow more complex as the change and reaction accelerates. of the legacies and adolescence brought for the world grew all the more relevant to those who would be players. with that i will be glad to take questions. i'm told that because of the sound system we have you should wait until the microphone reaches you can't stand up before asking a question. >> in the front row. >> great book, mr. pelfrey. one question i have listed in irony. i noticed in your book you say that general motors was a top seller of the vehicles in japan prior to world war ii and there's the irony. what happened there? >> that's absolutely true
and protests in many different countries. i've made it clear that the united states has a profound respect for people of all faiths. we stand for religious freedom. and we reject the den grags of any religion, including islam. >> just as freedom of speech has consequences so do all aspects of the democratic prospects. we watched as high hopes as the very same countries that have been burning american flags this week embrace democracy during the arab spring. how do we balance this tolerance against our own country's very real need for security? these are complicated questions. life or death questions. ones that we rely on our presidents and their administrations to address on our behalf. this is the work of the commander in chief. violence in streets across the arab world in the past days should remind us that these clearly are not abstract policy questions. they're not just about etiology. this was somehow, it seems, lost on the republican presidential challenger and his foreign policy team this week. governor mitt romney rushed out of the gate with this statement late on tuesday night. sa
straps. the fact is, it's harder in the united states to lift yourself from poverty now than it was 50 years ago. yet, in the midst of a presidential campaign where the economy is the central issue, we rarely hear poverty mentioned by either candidate. according to a new report by fairness and accuracy reporting, less than 1% of the campaign coverage addressed poverty in any way. that is, at least, directly. consider this, this week's teacher strike in chicago, more than 25,000 chicago teachers went on trike over a mere yad of issues, not the least of which are the teaching conditions in chicago schools. the strike exposed the battle lines between the movement and educators fighting against high stakes testing and a better approach to measuring school performance. driving the battle is educational outcomes to improve economic things for kids. it is always education, which is first and often only mentioned as the cure. that prescription sounds intuitive. what if the premise is wrong? what is robert rector is wrong and it does affect childhood. the average low income child enters kinderg
place where anyone would find any, you know, sort of satire or comedy. here in the united states, of course, we know that there are no -- there is nothing sacred. you know well, make fun of all religions and all people and things like that, and so i think, you know, there is a little bit of confliction, and i also think, randi, they might be confusing us with the european union because in many european countries there are laws which criminalize speech. for example, holocaust denial. maybe people think that, you know, there's a double standard in place here where muslim and muslims can be attacked with impunity, but other minority groups are protected. of course, there's a fwraet deal of ignorance there. >> just briefly, what do you say though those that say that muslim is not peaceful, but, many of the, violent in nature and mohammed is a warrior prophet. christian broadcaster pat robertson had this to say, for example. he said muslim is not a religion, but a violent political system. >> well, you know, pat robertson has also gone on record saying he wouldn't allow american hindu
in the united states, but around the world. thing this is the first year in the history of the world where more people will die from the effects of too much food than from starvation. and it's fascinating. it is also, we think, the first disease in the history of the world that has gone from being a rich person's disease to a poor person's disease. >> it's pretty astonishing, as you mentioned, mayor bloomberg. we've been reporting on this issue for some time. was there a perj personal story for you? did you have the effects of chronic obesity your family? yourself? >> no, but i can tell you and i think i speak for almost everybody, if it's in front of me, i eat it. i love cheese-its. if you put a bowl of -- a two-pound box of cheese its in front of me, i'd probably eat it all. that's probably not very good for you. but if you eat anything in moderation, there's no harm, almost anything. so if you put a small bowl of cheese its in front of me, that's fine. we all do the same thing. all we're try dog with full sugared drinks is to have a smaller portion in front of you. if you want to take a sma
this in the book, which is what you call i'm having a conversation with the president of the united states. [laughter] tell us what he thinks about it now. talk a bit about that conversation. >>well, you know, when he was -- when i was actually here in new york, i had just been on "the view," and was in a memo on the way to the airport with cnn when i received a call that was 404 area code, it's atlanta so i answers that. it was congressman john lewis. when he finished talking i decided i should check my text messages. i couldn't keep my voice mail clear enough to keep getting messages. there was a message from the white house saying the president was trying to reach me. so i called the number, and they wanted to arrange the call, so it's so interesting the people in the immediate yew. the person who was in the car with me from cnn start the pull out a camcorder, i said you cannot tape me while i'm talking to the president. so i made her turn it off, and put it away. [applause] so he started out by saying you're a hard person to reach. [laughter] well, everyone knew i'd been with cnn all w
